What are his potential red flags?

Awuzie is an aggressive player, but he’ll need to ease up on being so handsy. Despite being good at breaking up passes, he’s not much of a ballhawk, nabbing just three interceptions in four years at Colorado. His tackling ability is less than optimal — tight ends would provide a challenge.

Ultimately, Awuzie has more positives than negatives. Even if he doesn’t have the upside of other cornerbacks drafted ahead of him, he has one of the safest floors, profiling as a top-tier nickelback who can play outside when needed.

The Cowboys had two major defensive needs — pass rush and secondary. They addressed the pass rush in the first round with Taco Charlton, and Awuzie is a solid addition to the pass defense. Following the departures of Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in free agency, Awuzie fills an urgent need for Dallas.

According to the team’s photo in front of the White House, several Soccer Cheap Jerseys more contributors also decided to stay home. Super Bowl heroes Malcolm Butler, Danny Amendola, and James White weren’t present. Neither were contributors like Patrick Chung, Duron Harmon, Logan Ryan, and Shaq Mason.

That left players like Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, and Cheap Jerseys NBA China Marcus Cannon to represent the team in the nation’s capital. They were joined, of course, by head coach and Trump supporter Bill Belichick to greet the president on an overcast spring afternoon.

It started in front of the White House, where the bulk of the team, its coaches, and owner Robert Kraft took photos with their five Vince Lombardi trophies. Images are courtesy of the Patriots’ Snapchat.

The Cardinals need to think about life after Carson Palmer

The Browns made another smart move at No. 12, trading away their pick to the Houston Texans. Houston, a team with a desperate need at quarterback, landed Deshaun Watson. They’ll hope his winning Rugby Cheap Jerseys ways will carry over to the NFL.

The Cardinals need to think about life after Carson Palmer, but with the early run on quarterbacks in a weak class, it wasn’t really an option at No. 13. They did grab Haason Reddick, a linebacker with tremendous potential.

Next up, the Eagles addressed the pass rush, adding talented Tennessee product Derek Barnett at No. 14. The Colts continued to address the defensive deficiencies that plagued Indianapolis last season, snagging a safety with exceptional range in Ohio State’s Malik Hooker. Hooker is a solid value with the 15th pick.

It’s a deep draft for cornerbacks, and the Ravens filled a need and got one of the best in this class with Alabama’s Marlon Humphrey at No. 16. Baltimore added Brandon Carr this offseason, but still has a ways to go to strengthen the secondary.

Reuben Foster is still on the board at No. 15, but the Colts could make better use of the speed and athleticism of Reddick in the middle of the defense. In the second round, Indianapolis gives Andrew Luck — who has been injured for years now, literally — some much-needed protection.

Just like that, and the Titans secondary can go from a concern USA Cheap Jerseys to a strength. Here they add two SEC defensive backs, who would join former Patriots cornerback Logan Ryan and former Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien. Giving Marcus Mariota some more tools to work with is still a priority, but the team’s pass defense — which finished No. 30 in yards allowed — stands to make significant strides in 2017.

Minnesota will need to wait until the second round to start addressing its weaker spots.

Chapman (Boston’s sole Canadian allocation) and Oyster are good additions to a defense that was at least partially responsible for a league-worst minus-33 goal differential Cheap Jerseys And Hats From China in 2016. That Smith is back on the field after a suffering a season-ending knee injury less than halfway through her second appearance for Boston last year is more good news for a team that’s been hemorrhaging goals.

Lavelle and Andrews are two of 2017’s most promising rookies. And that Dowie will be around for more than the last month-and-a-half of the season is one of the best things that could happen to an offense that looked like it had all but forgotten the meaning of the word. Forgotten-like Dowie somehow led the Breakers in scoring in 2016 and she only scored three goals, including the game-winner in her debut, the whole thing leaving Boston fans to wonder what life would’ve been like had she been around for a whole season.

Minnesota will need to wait until the second round to start addressing its Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale weaker spots. Upgrading the offensive line comes first. A running back to help replace Adrian Peterson and a safety to complement Harrison Smith will be later-round targets.

New England doesn’t have any glaring needs after trading well for offense and spending well on defense. Now with only later picks, it will concentrate on rounding out the edges of its offensive and defensive lines.

Texas’ new locker room will have TVs instead of nameplates for players

Last week, Texas coach Tom Herman gave us the gif that will keep on giving whenever anything goes wrong during his tenure with the Longhorns.

Herman was putting in a hard day’s work because Texas is renovating its locker room. The renovations are absolutely ridiculous in how cool they look, if this locker is any indication. Here’s what one will look like when renovations are done, topped with a TV that’s as big or bigger than the one you probably have in your home.

He finished with 16 points on 8-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds and three assists to no turnovers. He’s the second scorer George has so desperately needed, and he was nearly enough to stave off the Eastern Conference favorite Cavs.

George was spectacular on his own with 29 points on 9-of-19 shooting, seven assists and five rebounds, and it was his late 3-pointer which had Indiana within one inside the final minute.

Indiana nearly pulled this all off with George firing off just four shots in the fourth quarter and taking two free throws. It was a slow middle of the last frame offensively that may have cost them. One possession more and Cleveland could have been stripped of its home court advantage.

The Jaguars ranked in the bottom third in rushing offense last NFL Jerseys Authentic season, and Fournette is the type of workhorse they can use to take pressure off quarterback Blake Bortles. Fournette was Cheap Authentic Jerseys From China bothered by an ankle injury last year, but the 6-foot, 240-pound power back still managed to average 6.5 yards per carry and score eight touchdowns. This is after he ran for 1,953 yards and 22 scores as a true sophomore.

Spieth began the day at even par for the tournament.

“You mail out your [Letters of Intent] to the guys that you know are going to sign with you,” a Group of 5 recruiting coordinator told SB Nation before this year’s Signing Day. “Your commits, your solid commits, and the targets that you know will sign with you. You know. A kid has already told you he’s gonna sign with you on Signing Day. If you don’t know, you wait until Monday, and then you overnight it.”

A December signing period will compact February’s drama.

As it’s stood, most teams have had a handful of early enrollee commits locked in before Signing Day: maybe three, or maybe 10. Teams sign 25 players per year, give or take. All those who haven’t enrolled early are still free agents, so their recruitment hasn’t ended by Feb. 1.

Jordan Spieth has played the Masters four times in his career, including this weekend. In the first three, he played in the final group on Sunday. He’s positioning himself to do it a fourth time this year, as he’s charged into second place at Augusta National by dominating the course on Saturday. He’s made moving day his own.

Spieth began the day at even par for the tournament. He had a good Friday, after a quadruple-bogey marred his opening round on Thursday. He really kicked into Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys gear on Saturday, moving to 5-under through 14 holes. Nobody’s had a bigger day.

Spieth is still chasing Charley Hoffman, who led the tournament Wholesale Jerseys China by four shots after Thursday and was in a four-way tie at the top after Friday. Spieth had been well down the leaderboard after Thursday and just on the fringe of contention ahead of Saturday, but he’s gotten to a point where only Hoffman is ahead of him.

Nick Saban paid up on his national championship bet with Dabo Swinney

To the victor go the spoils, and Dabo Swinney got to enjoy them after Clemson won the national championship.

With vacation homes near each other in Florida, Swinney and Nick Saban made a friendly wager before the 2016 national title game. After a St. Patrick’s Day dinner cruise, Swinney bought Saban a gift certificate to live up to his side of the bargain.

This is an extraordinarily brutal hit under any circumstance. Braswell bobbled an option pitch and was chasing a fumble with his head down, and Abram launched himself straight into Braswell’s head. Spring games are not played under the most official of college football rules, but this is a textbook example of targeting, anyway. A hit of this nature in a spring game is exceedingly rare, as spring games usually aren’t that intense.

It would’ve been an ejectable hit in a regular game, but in this game, it was simply a day-ender. Whether Abram was defenseless on the play, the contact to his head was so strong that any video crew in college football would’ve called targeting. The NCAA’s targeting rule bans this sort of contact to the head.

Verstappen had the pace though, and ultimately NHL Jerseys China was able to cleanly pass Ricciardo to take second place behind Hamilton. Verstappen quickly NFL Jerseys Authentic outpaced himself from Ricciardo and before long, Ricciardo was a full six seconds behind his teammate and holding up the Ferraris behind him.

Eventually, Vettel made it past Raikkonen, and then overtook Ricciardo to begin chasing Verstappen. Verstappen’s lap times had begun to drop by that point, and it wasn’t long before Vettel was in DRS range of Verstappen, while the pair of them were a good 10 seconds back of Hamilton.

Tiger was set on cruise control coming to the 18th hole.

Despite Bumgarner’s power at the plate and mostly dominant day on the mound, the Diamondbacks pulled off a miracle ninth inning win on the backs of Jeff Mathis and Daniel Descalso. Oh, baseball. How I missed you.

Another way of looking at this glorious day is that we’ll Cheap Dan Marino Jerseys be kicking things off with Noah Syndergaard throwing the first pitch of the day and Mike Trout participating in the last game. In between, we’ll have games featuring: Bryce Harper, Mookie Betts, Nolan Arenado, Manny Machado, Clayton Kershaw, Miguel Cabrera, Byron Buxton, Billy Hamilton, Francisco Lindor, and Carlos Correa. All of those players will be in different games. Seems pretty good, to be quite honest. Buckle up, because today is the first of many full days of baseball to come. And it couldn’t come soon enough.

Tiger was set on cruise control coming to the 18th hole. He wasn’t going to lose, but he wanted to best Jack Nicklaus for the all-time Masters scoring record. On the 18th tee someone shouted during Big Cat’s swing and he pulled his tee shot way left.

But, come on, this was Tiger’s week. He found his ball in an advantageous spot. He put his second shot on the green and two-putted his way to the best score in Masters history.

Don’t be surprised if on draft night McCaffrey is the second running back picked. He offers many of the same things Dalvin Cook does, and he doesn’t have the background questions as the Florida State star. The Eagles need a playmaker this draft, and McCaffrey can do it from the running back Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys spot while also working as a wideout and return specialist.

Jason Peters questionable for Sunday

The New York Giants have won three straight games, but could be without Jason Pierre-Paul on Sunday when attempting to make it four in a row against the Green Bay Packers.

The defending Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens are a game away from getting back to the .500 mark, but may have to get there with a banged up defense. Defensive lineman Haloti Ngata and cornerback Lardarius Webb, two of the stars of Baltimore’s defense, are both listed as questionable for this week’s game against the Chicago Bears. Ngata is dealing with a knee injury, Webb is dealing with a groin injury and neither has participated in practice.

Ed Reed will “definitely” play on Sunday, according to the veteran safety.He was signed by the New York Jets on Thursday after being released by the Baltimore Ravens and placed on waivers. Ryan did say that Reed was not expected to start, which is no surprise. Even for a veteran like Reed who has history in similar schemes, it would be a tall order.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is having another down season. There’s been a lot of talk about him potentially mulling a trade request earlier in the season, and now the reports are that the Steelers are unhappy with Roethlisberger and his style of Echl Cheap Jerseys play, in addition to his preparation.

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker Detroit Lions Cheap Jerseys thinks that Walden should have been thrown out for his headbutt on Thursday Night Football. Walker said that he was “whipping his butt” and that got Walden riled up. He said that Walden should have been ejected an that it’s “bush league” that he wasn’t.

Saints won’t give up No. 11 pick to Patriots for Malcolm Butler

The New Orleans Saints have been courting New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler for weeks, but it’s not a sure thing that Butler will come to New Orleans. Head coach Sean Payton said Tuesday that the Saints will not give up the No. 11 pick in the 2017 draft to acquire Butler.

“Currently, it’s my understanding he hasn’t signed his tender, and so it was just that we can sign him to an offer sheet, but I don’t think we’re going to do that and give up the 11th pick,” Payton said from the owners meetings on Wednesday. “In fact, I know we’re not going to do that. So it is what it is right now.”

Tuesday evening at the owners meeting in Phoenix, Goodell told the media, “I plan to be at the kickoff game.”

Just a day earlier, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said Goodell would be welcomed to the team’s opener.

“As we all know, he has the right to go wherever he wishes to go,” Kraft said via the Boston Herald. “And if he wanted to come, he’s welcomed to come. We’re happy we’ll be celebrating our fifth banner. He can decide whether he wants to be there.”

Typically this wouldn’t be a surprise, since Goodell usually attends the first game of the season. Yet after Goodell and the Patriots went through the long, drawn out Deflategate controversy — which concluded with Tom Brady being suspended the first four games of the season — he Cheap Packer Jerseys avoided any trips to New England.

He didn’t attend the Patriots playoff game against the Texans last postseason, opting to watch the Falcons take on the Seahawks. The next week, he saw the Falcons yet again, this time taking on the Packers. Patriots fans let him know they were aware, chanting “Where is Roger!?” during the AFC Championship against the Steelers.

Goodell couldn’t dodge the Patriots at Super Bowl 51, however. He handed Kraft the Vince Lombardi Trophy after the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history.

It will be Goodell’s first game in New England since the AFC Championship in January 2017, which Cheap Online Jerseys sparked Deflategate.

NFL injury report, Week 10: Peyton Manning escapes serious injury, and other news in the AFC West

The Denver Broncos survived a scare in Week 10 as it was revealed after an MRI that Peyton Manning did not suffer any new damage to his ankle.

Manning will play Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs in a vital divisional matchup that holds huge significance to playoff seeding in the conference. It was unclear whether Manning could play given the injury, even though he made statement following the game that he intended to play.

On his weekly radio show on ESPN 540, Rodgers hinted that his goal was to return against the Vikings in Week 12, which would mark 20 days since a sack on the opening possession of the Packers’ game against the Bears fractured his left collarbone. He went on to say he has not ruled out an earlier return.

“I would like to be back this week,” Rodgers said, referring to the Packers’ Week 11 game against the Giants. “Now, whether that’s realistic or not remains to be seen. I would never rule myself out on a Tuesday. Now, [head coach Mike McCarthy] probably already has, I think.”

McCarthy has already named Scott Tolzien, a recently promoted practice squad player who showed promise in a loss to the Eagles last week, the starter against the Giants.

“I haven’t given up hope on playing any week,” Rodgers said. “It depends on how I heal and depends on what the next x-ray looks like. Obviously, this week is probably not going to happen — not going to happen.”

Tolzien was forced into action against the Eagles after a groin injury sidelined Seneca Wallace, who was placed on the injured reserve list earlier this week.

The Packers signed free agent Matt Flynn Very Cheap Jerseys on Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Tuesday, returning him to a team where he served four seasons as Rodgers’ backup. He will be the No. 2 quarterback behind Tolzien against the Vikings.
